Cartoon Network has given the green light to two new animated comedy series: Regular Show and Horrorbots.
The network also announced it is ordering more episodes of the series The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, and a new season of scripts for the series Adventure Time.
Regular Show is the creation of J.G. Quintel, who developed the idea as a short for the network’s Cartoonstitute. The series is about two bored groundskeepers ‘Mordecai, a 6-foot-tall blue jay, and Rigby, a raccoon ‘ who entertain themselves as best they can, annoying their gumball machine boss Benson and pleasing Pops. Quintel was creative director on Flapjack for two seasons, as well as a storyboard artist on Camp Lazlo. The series will be produced at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank.
Horrorbots is about a pair of outsider teenage droids facing high school on the planet Killglobe, which is populated by ultra-powerful robots. The show will be produced in New York and was created by Michael Buckley, whose credits include The Sisters Grimm, and Joe Deasy.
The order for Flapjack will bring the total number of episodes for the series to 46. The new segments will be made at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank.
The purchase of new Adventure Time scripts precedes the show’s debut, which is set for 2010. The series is created by Pendleton Ward.
